Educating at-risk youth in Honduras
Annual Goal: $30,000.00
Year to Date Gifts: $100.00
Prior to 2014, there was no secondary education in Ciudad Espana, Honduras. Students had to either travel 45 minutes by bus to Tegucigalpa (oftentimes a dangerous trip) or if they couldn’t afford it, had no educational opportunities past the 7th grade. This led to teens joining gangs or working at a manual labor position due to no secondary education.
Scholarships will fund school for those that don’t have funds to do so.
To improve the economic condition in Ciudad Espana. To keep children and youth out of gangs. To stem the tide of Hondurans fleeing the country due to lack of opportunity or violence.
